What do you guys make of this? No optics cut slides but they’ll be offering aftermarket optics soon? Does that mean they aren’t going to offer any actual way to mount an optic? Maybe I’m interpreting this the wrong way lol

I’m not sure, Steyr is hard to get information from. I was told they would sell frames awhile back, still none, actually worse now the frames are serialized. I have also been told they will sell extra slides, but that hasn’t come yet either. I believe they said optics ready would be the next generation. I’m going to guess maybe they will offer a milling service for aftermarket optics? But I am not sure. Here is why, he says aftermarket so maybe not a from factory milled slide. Unless he is saying they will use a dovetail mount there really isn’t another way to offer a optic and not mill it.

Ok so I think it’s safe to say that they are releasing their own optic that will mount to the slide via the dove tail as that’s the only thing that makes sense to me if they’re releasing a optic that mounts to the current slide

It does exist already but Steyr initially made it sound like maybe a optics ready slide. Now moving to this is a bit of a bummer. I think they are offering a factory option to try and stay relevant in a optics ready standard market place. It’s a bummer since a optics ready cut is doable and would be a nice addition. Also the slide design like on the BB slide was not great.

It suck’s they won’t make at least get an optics ready slide. If some company like GGP or Apex took on the task I am sure that it would pretty awesome. Until that happens I guess I will use my other red dot equipped pistols if I go open class. It’s too bad since I shoot the Steyr pistols the quickest.
